Here are three paintings and one embroidery, on the theme of Antigone. These were all completed in and around 1990, which is when my grandmother was working from this this story. Typically, she depicts her characters in contemporary clothing, even though the story is from Ancient Greece.
Antigone is depicted here, flanked by her uncle, King Creon, and his son, Haemon, and her sister, Ismene.
(This one was considered a study, in preparation for a larger, more completed work)
I love the way her embroidery style mimics her brushstrokes! To see more of her embroideries, check out the current exhibit at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education.
The Helzer Art Gallery at Portland Community College Rock Creek is also showing her work right now, including one of her embroideries.
